Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-810) Fullscreen plugin is /not/ under the Apache license
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 16:54:48 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-810:

Yeah, we also have some JIRA issues related to the support of P2 for Apache Directory Studio,
which is released an RCP app and an update site for installation in Eclipse. I have yet to
find the time to dive into P2 and integrate the generation of the repository in our build.

Also, we're looking at Tycho for a long time now and maybe we can someday make the switch
from our custom Maven build (Tycho didn't exist at the time we moved to Maven, so we had to
find a way to build Eclipse plugins).

Regarding the fullscreen plugin integration, for us the painless solution is really to include
the jar of the plugin in our internal Maven repository.
When building the OS X versions of the RCP application we would pull the plugin from the repository
and include it in the distribution.
If and when the plugin becomes available in a central Maven repository, we would get rid of
our copy to access it directly from there.

Many thanks for everything, Alex! (and again, apologies for the stupid mistake...)
I really love the ability to use Studio as a fullscreen app on OS X Lion.

> The fullscreen plugin was copied source-for-source from
under the Eclipse Public License.
> In revision 1229632 the source code was modified to indicate that it was released under
the Apache License. This is not the case.
> Please remove the Apache License from these files as I do not give permission for these
to be relicensed without prior consultation.
> The PLUGIN_ID in the Activator also needs to be renamed if you are doing this wholesale
to avoid problems where the real plugin may be available.
